What Does The NFL Lockout Mean To You?


To follow up on my post about signing the petition to avoid an NFL lockout, I wanted to embed this video. It has players and fans explaining what an NFL lockout would mean to them. It also has the one and only Floyd Little in it.

After you watch the video, leave a comment in the comment section telling me what an NFL lockout would mean to you. I will pick my favorite answer and that person will receive a Broncos related prize. The deadline for the contest is next Thursday, December 23rd.

So, what does a lockout mean to you?

    I’m not sure I like that there is now a logo designed for the NFL lockout…

  • Kim Constantinesco

    Yeah, that’s kind of messed up, but since the possibility is there, I guess there has to be one.

  • shomari bennett

    The lockout to me means at least a couple of weeks where we may not win but we sure as hell won’t loose either for a change.

    The lockout means we won’t get to see all the new young Bronco talent Tebow, Thomas, Decker to name a few – see what these guys can possible do for this team. It means fall wont exist in my house – just summer then a void until mid Feb UGH.

  • candi mellow

    that would be “possibly”

  • Danny Stevens

    If their is a lock out I would be miserable for the would be football season!! I can’t watch my Broncos forget fall!!

  • Brinda Linck

    As a single mom who works full time and goes to college at night, it would mean an end to my only enjoyable down time. Watching football is a great stress reducer. I can get all of my frustrations out at the TV instead of my boss or professors :) It’s american Football! there is nothing that compares.

  • Kevin

    A lockout would me angry at players and owners. It would be so frustrating to have the fans loyalty rewarded by a break in play over squabbles over money. I can stand losing, I know we will be back eventually, but missing games over this would leave a really bad taste in my mouth.

  • malachi martin

    If this lock out does happen, it would just crush me. I love waking up early ever Sunday and watching what could happen on the grid iron. I know people want to make money, but what about the fans…we buy everything with our teams logos to season tickets. If this happens it would like taking christmas away. I live and breath football. In my house its tradition to watch the broncos play and if I can’t watch them on Sunday it would be taking candy from a baby. I hope it doesn’t happen, cause there is no other sport like football. I will always bleed orange and blue

  • John

    The lockout to me would represent a loss in an avenue that I utilize to vent from the world. The Broncos make me high and at times very low, but I will always bleed orange and blue. Would hate to see this happen over money. Everyone needs to have idols and the Broncos do it for me. The legend will bring much needed focus and renewed comittment from the player to once again become the “Crush” of old.

    When my other obsessions end…LOST, Dr. Horrible, Firefly…The Denver Broncos have always held steady. An NFL Lock-out would leave me empty of craziness…boring…and really sad.

    An NFL lockout means 3 things (keep in mind I am from Canada)

    1) 6th straight season without a Broncos Playoff game
    2) No annual trip to Denver to watch my beloveed Broncos
    3) I will have to watch the CFL

  • Trevor Jay

    No NFL next year?

    When will I wear my Terrell Davis jersey? How will I convince my old lady to fly to Colorado with me for new years eve, if there’s no Broncos tickets involved? How will they know who to put on the cover of Madden ’12? Wait, will this mean no Madden?! Am I just supposed to settle for two games on Sundays? (CFL, go Eskimos!) How much more filler can the NFL Network come up with?
    But on the bright side, in my mind Denver doesn’t lose a game all year and the Steelers and Chargers go winless. Technically.
    Really though, no NFL football means no identity for hundreds of thousands of football fans all across America and Canada. Sign the petition and get everyone you know to do the same.

    What would a lock out mean to me?

    Well, coming from and now living back in New Zealand, rugby is bred in us as the sport above all others.

    But not me!! Ever since my wife and I moved to America a four years ago to give birth to our son near his mothers family, ive learnt that football (The American version) is the best thing to do on a Sunday or any other day its played. You know what else i learnt?, that the Broncos of Denver Colorado are the best team in the NFL, and in world sport.

    While living in America, i lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The pilgrimage to Denver was a sacrefice that was so worth being at Invesco at Mile High.

    Please do all possible to avoid a lock out, because i work for an international airline, and using my one free ticket a year to come see my guys in Blue, Orange and white is second only to my family (just). plus what else do i do on Monday afternoon Football (Sunday Football in America). Whating Elway lift the Lombardi trophy is cool, but i want to see it back in Denver in early 2012.

    Im here rooting for you, especially through our worst season since 1972. Next year we rebuild and move closer to our third Superbowl title.

    GO Broncos!!!

  • Michael Mulligan

    I love the Broncos and I love football; however, the lock-out represents a complete lack of understand when it comes to reality by both the owners and the players. When is enough? This is a multi BILLION dollar industry where owners and players get paid an obscene amount of money to PLAY A GAME! This is a time in our nations history where people are just happy to have a job and this industry is talking about a work stoppage. I don’t understand how someone can’t live on an NFL salary. I, along with many others I am sure, would love to have the opportunity to give it a try. I think they should just do their jobs and be a little more thankful for the things they already have and stop looking selfish and ungrateful.

  • Mike Deveau

    A lockout means a long stressful winter. I work long hard hours, and sitting down to watch a football game is my only reprieve during the winter. When the Broncos are on everyone knows not to bug me and let me enjoy. Without football I will never have a break. It will be an incessant barrage of requests and demands for my time.

  • Stephen Garcia

    A lockout to me means a test of faith. Because I don’t know how I can live in the winter without some Broncos football.

    It would feel like your heroes failed and lost his soul.

  • Mike Malecki

    An NFL lockout to me would mean that rather obsessing over The Broncos all day everyday, I would probably have to devote my time and efforts into something else. Potential endeavors include but are not limited to:
    ~time travel (to advance to a time when the lockout ends)
    ~cryogenic freezing (to thaw myself when lockout ends)
    ~becoming a trillionaire (to pay off players to end lockout)
    ~crying (its ok to let it all out, it speeds things up)
    ~time travel 2 (to go back in time before the lockout and prevent it from happening)
    ~inception (so i can always live in a Broncos football dream world)

  • Will Ryan

    I think that the players would bored and play basketball and hurt themselves like Ryan Clady did this year

  • Amanda Sherry

    It would mean the same as when the NHL locked out their players. No amount of money is ever enough. 20 million dollar salaries, hundreds of dollars for jerseys, hundreds of dollars for tickets, millions for stadiums, millions for championship rings…….I know it’s a business, but it’s still a kids game. It’s great entertainment. Yet still, someone, or both sides just aren’t happy and can’t reach an agreement. So the fans who fuel all this money to the business, go without. No amount of money is ever enough to make everyone happy.

  • Darold Belshe

    It will mean the end of all happiness in my life! What am I supposed to do on Sunday, pay attention to the wife! I will be made in to a miserable man.
